No, EDVF is available also for uncalibrated battery. There are EDV1 and
EDVF flags. Both are set based on battery voltage and some other
parameters from bq EEPROM.

Yes, it ignores only capacity values (which needs calibration), not
those raw flags which works also without calibration.

Looks like this is OK.
